4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2015 bottle (new labels, not like the label pictured here) drunk 10/23/15 and on Cask at NERAX, Summer 2013.
Still havenít got around to entering my ratings from NERAX 2.5 years ago...sigh. So itís good that I finally had this one (bottle at Deep Ellum, $17, bottle at liquor store down the street, $25. Makes you wonder....). Light haziness to the blonde liquid, leaving the sediment in the bottle. Big white head but it collapses pretty quickly to a covering, though is retained well there.
Loved in on cask, loved it in the bottle. Very juicy, peachy nose is nonetheless well-fermented/macerated and the peach combines well with the yeast/bacteria acids which are in turned laced with a light honey-vanilla character. Some floral notes, very low on the wood and mostly just a bright fruited sour that leans a lot more to the fruited American weisse end of the spectrum than the heavily barreled, intensely sour wild ale end. No alcohol, no flaws.
In the mouth itís tightly carbonated, juicy, acidic but yet balanced with maltiness. Peach flavor is authentic, nicely integrated and oak barrel character shows restraint of tannin and even a touch of wine-like character (this is not wine barrel aged, to my knowledge, to clarify). Love the alcohol here and indeed the resulting high drinkability. Sure, ití dosent have the most profound of complexities, nor are you going to confuse this for Fou Foune, but I think people are unfairly expecting a lot more out of this. A simple peach golden ale aged in oak, left at low gravity to be both bright, refreshing and drinkable. Love it.

Bottle thanks to Jason (I think?) for sharing. Aromas are peaches, yogurt, and oak. Tastes slightly funky which is nice here. Lots of peach yogurt, some lemon, strong oak. Mild sourness. Really good but I wish it was just a little more sour.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy dandelion gold with a fuzzy off-white head. Aroma has prominent peach followed by sharp vanilla and oak, lemon and soft wheaty funk. Big peach flavor, very much like biting into the fruit with sweet juice and a little peach-skin bitterness. Acidity is very mild, as is the funk. Watery medium-light body; mild CO2. Good peach flavor but lacking in the acidity and complexity of other Cisco sours.

Bottle split at Bruces pad - for the last time, big thanks to LKS, 27/03/15.
Hazed orange golden with a moderate off white covering.
Nose is lemon rind, tarte apricot, buttery notes - but not in a bad way, pissy tones.
Taste comprises light funk, atraw, apricot yoghurt, citric zest, peach, tangerine, tarte fruit rinds.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a funky soured fruit wash.
Decent approachable sour.
